I love this!

"The Portsmouth Humane Society announced on Wednesday its first drive-thru pet pantry as a way to assist community pet owners with food for their pets during the coronavirus pandemic.

The drive-thru pantry will be on April 25 from 8 a.m. to noon at the PHS located on 4022 Seaboard Court in Portsmouth, Virginia. According to the statement released, proof of Portsmouth residency is required. Examples include a driver’s license, utility bill, lease, or lease listing your current address. Proof of need is not required.

The drive-thru service has a few guidlines to follow in an effort to prevent the coronavirus spread.

  • Patrons must stay in their vehicles and PHS staff will come to them.
  • Dry and wet food is available on a first-come, first-serve basis while supplies are available. Food limits are five dogs per household. The pet pantry is available as a result of community pet food donations.
  • Catfood is currently not available and those that need assistance now can contact the Norfolk SPCA or the Chesapeake Humane Society."
